This series focuses on the Nazi tactic of infiltrating the police and military, in order to compromise those institutions and acquire the “specialized knowledge and abilities” required to overthrow the state. This tactic has been adopted by Nazis and fascists world-wide and is very much in evidence in the United States. The series analyzes, among other events, the random murder of two black citizens in North Carolina by off-duty paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division, who were apparently members of white supremacist organizations. The killings took place on the tenth anniversary of the killing of Robert Matthews (a member of “The Order”, the Nazi organization that killed Alan Berg, a Denver talk show host.) Other points covered in the series include: an analysis of the militia movement, which discusses evidence that some elements of the militias may actually be an extension of the very government they profess to be opposed to; discussion of the Oklahoma City Bombing indicating that the perpetrators may very well have been members of an international fascist conspiracy; an examination of the proto-Nazi “National Bolshevik” movement in Weimar Germany, which compares that movement to the fascist elements within the militia movement. (Recorded in the late winter and early spring of 1996.)
